Lakers turn attention to scheduling workouts with top players

The Denver Nuggets haven't exactly had bad luck in the NBA Draft Lottery (unlike their Pepsi Center roommates), but they've never had good luck, either.

The Charlotte Hornets, Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat will get the final four lottery picks.

Like everything in sports, there were winners and losers.

Either way, the Celtics won big.

Suddenly, the Boston Celtics' future looks a lot better than their present.

There was no losing on this night for the Celtics.

The Celtics finished dismantling the team that beat the Lakers to win the 2008 championship when they traded Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn on the night of the 2013 draft.

Isaac seems like a natural fit for the Wolves-a long forward who hopefully can guard inside and out (eventually) and maybe shoot it some. They have the #37 pick, #53 pick, and the #56 pick.

Lonzo Ball could have a chance to stay in Los Angeles after pingpong balls dictated the franchise not only keep its first-round pick but move up a spot in the process.

U.S. officials criticize Turkey after attack on DC protesters
The U.S. declined to say whether the security agents were granted diplomatic immunity or under what conditions they were released. They said they expected "conduct more appropriate" from Turkey, a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and a key US ally.

One of those trades could be to the Sacremento Kings, swapping the first overall pick for the fifth and tenth - giving the Celtics depth, something they need.

Ainge and the Celtics also have three second round picks this year. One spot surely won't make a difference, especially for the targets they reportedly want.

After landing the No. 2 overall pick, Los Angeles is widely expected to draft UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball.

"You trade this pick, because [Markelle Fultz] can not help the Celtics get over the top", Pierce told The Jump.

It's easy to be negative with anything regarding the Kings, but there are positives to take away from this night. Why trade for a top player and give up a large number of assets, when one could just be drafted? I just kind of sit back and they'll figure it out. Five is a better pick than eight. Boston can select no lower than fourth in the June draft. It would have converted into a second round pick.

"Getting the No. 1 pick is very fun". But those bad deals are in the past. 76ers; 4. Suns; 5.

Phoenix has been begging for a star player ever since the Steve Nash era ended. A point guard? How do they feel about Elfrid Payton? Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox is also projected in that range. Frank Vogel is a good coach.

Sacramento actually moved up into the top three, but the 76ers had the right to swap with them through terms of a past trade. The Kings will likely go with a guard/wing combo with both picks.
